Nadiya will be presenting the following workshops at the Astrology Rising 2020 Conference:

The Great Conjunction: The Divine Meeting of Jupiter & Saturn, in History and in your Chart!

2020 will end with a meeting of Jupiter and Saturn, both newly in the sign of Aquarius. The Ancients spoke of the great conjunctions, the immediate blessings and larger patterns they indicate. This fun and lively talk will explore what these 2 planets meeting in Dec 2020 will mean for us as a collective, as we look to the past for indications and forward for the enthusiasm indicated ahead. Ideas from Kepler and Jung and are some of what we will explore together. We will also speak about what the 2020 Great Conjunction will mean for each Sun, Moon, and Rising Sign.

Past Lives & Spiritual Lessons of The North Node

The Nodes of the Moon are considered part of the Karmic intent of the Moon and the Soul for this lifetime. They provide a powerful symbol for where you have been, and how to best align yourself with a higher, more loving vision for your life. This class will explore what the Nodes of the Moon indicate in an astrology chart, including past life archetypes and roles you might have had. We will uncover how to best use the direction the Soul wishes to travel.
This interactive and fun lecture will be followed by a guided meditation, so you can get in contact with what it is your Soul wants to say to you about where you have been, and where you are ready to go next.

An Introduction To Astrological Magic and “Planetary Prayer”

Setting an intention, timed to the best astrological moment, has been one way the ancients thought to boost the power of their request – but how did they think those requests were sent and received? This workshop will start with a philosophical and historical exploration, before moving on to more practical applications, including some basics of astrological Magic, and “Planetary Prayers”. The second part of the workshop will be experiential. We will have a group meditation to help you connect with a planet more deeply, followed by group sharing of our insights. Finally, we will close with music and chant.  No prior experience is necessary to benefit from the lessons in this class. 

Mars Rx: Redefining The Sacred Masculine

One of the defining transits of 2020 will be Mars Retrograde in its home sign of Aries later this year. The ancients considered Mars the god of war. In Jungian terms, he is our animus, the part within that motivates us to take action and own our personal power. So what happens when Mars goes retro? We get to turn this energy inward and decide what true power will be to us. Mars’ properties of self-knowledge become heightened, as we examine the ways in which we have embraced limited concepts of our own sacred masculine within. This class will look at the archetype and symbolism of Mars, as part of understanding what his retrograde could mean for us, individually and for the collective, as we stand on the precipice of a New Age.
